Greetings from Portugal

We landed in Faro today and headed about 90 mins west to a small fishing town called Bergau on the western edge of the Algarve region. Surf is flat unfortunately but might be hooking up with a mob for a one day excursion further west.  Plenty of OWS opportunity and I brought my wetsuit.

Planning on a decent running block, followed by plenty of local culinary re-fueling 😎

Cheers mate. It's so unbelievably quiet here, there aren't even any baking dogs. I'm not sure we're in the right place :lol:

I am off for an easy 9kms now and later heading out for the day with surfing school on the west coast. I don't need the school but they also do a ' do your own thing' package, so should be fun.  

We were hoping for some local surf but it will be flat all week. The locals said ' you should have been here last week' !

2hr mtb ride later this morning. Will try and take pics. Scenery here is beautiful. Surfed for 5 hrs yesterday in the most rugged terrain on the west coast.

Survived my mtb ride. Not sure what we were riding, Specialized something. Looked like a cross between an mtb and a fatbike. Had fun anyway. The instructor said I'd could do a 2 hr hard ride on Thurs if I wanted because she said she didn't feel I was getting much of a workout today. Eek!

random pics:

Yep. It's our own fault for keeping on feeding her!

A bottle of Jacobs Creek in the foreground. Seems you can't get away from it anywhere in the world.
